all204 (898409) writes "A galaxy made entirely from dark matter has been discovered. A link to the original research paper can be found here.

From the original article:

"An international team of astronomers have conclusive new evidence that a recently discovered "dark galaxy" is, in fact, an object the size of a galaxy, made entirely of dark matter. Although the object, named VIRGOHI21, has been observed since 2000, astronomers have been slowly ruling out every alternative explanation.""
